Back in Christmas time, I went to visit my Godparents and had dinner at their house. My Godmother had made some Gravlax which was amazing, and after talking with her a while, it seemed easy enough to make. A few weeks ago, I searched out a few recipes online and settled on a fairly simple one that called for Kosher salt, vanilla sugar, cracked peppercorns and some dill. I added chives and basil and then followed the rest of the recipe and it turned out fairly decent. So much so that when I gave about half of what I made to my parents, they finished it within a few days and asked me to make more. So here we are, a slight modification on the original recipe.

  • 2 cups of Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup of vanilla sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Cracked peppercorns
  • 2 boxes of fresh baby dill
  • 1 box of fresh chives
  • 1 box of fresh basil
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 whole salmon

So here is another session of cooking with Clem.
